The west of Scotland is famed for its scenic sailing, as well as associated chandlery and marina services. Close by is the sheltered sea loch of Loch Feochan which is well known among the sailing community and has always drawn yachts and boating craft to its pretty, sheltered and safe anchorage.
Further to the south is Craobh Haven marina, where a larger, safe water marina was formed by the building of causeways and a large breakwater between a small group of tidal saltwater islands. The marina has been developed from a near perfect natural harbour, with berths for up to 250 craft of all sizes to a maximum length of 33 meters. Craobh marina offers access to a fabulous selection of west coast sea lochs and islands with lots of sheltered anchorages to explore and has a harbourmaster, marina office and chandlers. There are also many opportunities for seal and whale-watching, bird watching and diving opportunities in the surrounding waters. The local inland countryside provides an abundance of outdoor and sporting activities including hill walking and mountain biking, and there are many small, well-stocked hill lochs for trout fishing plus some spate streams for salmon and sea-trout. Oban and surrounding sheltered sea lochs provide excellent and abundant sea-fishing plus sailing access to the west coast, inner and outer Hebrides all of which is widely recognised by yachtsmen and women the world over as some of the most scenic and testing sailing available.
Wildlife abounds the glen with frequent sightings of Red deer, (spectacular in the rut in October) pine martins, golden and sea eagles to name but a few.
